Surgical Errors

When surgeons perform procedures on patients, they are obliged to meet a high standard of care.  All procedures carry some risk and, with the best care in the world, the outcome is not always as expected – recognised complications can arise.

However, if standards are not met and errors are made, there may be a claim.

Examples of surgical errors include:

  • Causing an excessive bleed during surgery and not treating it urgently
  • Negligent damage to organs or nerves
  • Performing the wrong kind of operation.
  • Leaving medical apparatus inside the body 
  • Failing to follow procedures to prevent the risk of infection.
  • Anaesthetic errors
  • Hypoxic Brain Injuries 

If you or someone you care about has suffered from surgical mistakes or errors please call our Patient Claims Team on 0333 987 4011 or email to speak to one of our experts today.
